how do i remove a broken key from the ignition of a 1996 gran am


will try to assist you. #1 solution remove and replace the ignition switch.#2 try a 'Q' tip with super glue and insert the Q tip into the key switch and allow drying time to let the Q tip to dry onto the broken part of key to remove. but if the key was twisted in anger or frustration,this solution will not work,just to save you the time.only other altenative is to remove the key switch and install new one. only good news is this, if your key is solid metal and no plastic, theres no computer issues with replacing the ignition switch.otherwise with plastic end on the thumb side,$75.00 and you would have to order the key from dealer only with the cars vin# and deposit up front and 2 day wait. if you need assistance removing the steering column to replace that switch,please repost your questions to fixya.com.

How do you change a fuel filter in a 92 Toyota sr5 22re


The fuel filter is usually found next to the fuel tank (driver side). It'll be somewhat tucked up under just between the wheel well and the tank.

Some have clamps, others have metal threaded inserts that the filter screws into. Before removing, find your the fuel port on the fuel rail and unscrew the black threaded tip; press the needle inside and (cover with rag or hand) and release the pressure.

You will still have some fuel leakage when removing the filter, but this is unavoidable. Releasing the pressure will keep you from being sprayed with fuel (rarely happens, but allows less fuel loss).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

how to clean stainless steele tip


You can usually restore some of the original shine with 000 steel wool and chrome cleaner, but the minute you run it again it will change back.
Some of the colouring is an actual chemical reaction in the metal itself and cannot be removed.
